The classic Hotel Alisios puts you in a great spot, just steps from the beach and only a short walk from Albufeira.
Sea views are part of the deal at this hotel. It occupies a spot on the edge of a small cliff, with a stretch of golden sand directly beneath. You can walk to Albufeira’s cobbled Old Town in less than 10 minutes.
The hotel’s doors open up to elegant interiors. The marble-floored lobby features high-backed chairs placed around vintage rugs. It’s a similar story in the rooms, where fawn-coloured fabrics are paired with dark-wood furniture.

From the moment you enter this oasis of calm, you know this hotel is special. The hotel lobby is stunning, with beautiful artwork and objects placed around. We had a warm welcome from the lovely lady on reception and this was the case with all staff. The hotel is situated in an outstanding position on the beach. Our room had a sea view, this was spectacular. We went to sleep each night, listening to the waves. There was a good and varied selection for breakfast. Even at busy times we never felt rushed. As we were only there for three nights and had already made plans, we did not go to dinner. I was lucky to meet the charming lady ,whose husband built the hotel. The day we checked out , we left some items behind! Hugo on reception was brilliant. He retrieved said items and kept them until I could return. Thank you Hugo. If you want a hotel that exudes elegance and a certain serenity, please don't hesitate to visit the Hotel Alisios.More
Wow what a treat this hotel turned out to be. From checking in and the warm welcome we received to the hotel receptionist Zelio waving us off in a cab, it was just fabulous from start to finish. Rooms were spotless, especially the bathroom. Only negative I would say is we would request double beds next time. Right on a super beach, ideal for walking along and collecting shells to take home to the children. Ideally positioned near to the Old Town, where you find many restaurants. We ate out every evening and found the bars and food to be amazing. We loved the hotel terrace, so much so we spent most of our days relaxing on the terrace, service was fantastic. Thank you Americo, Juan, and Patrico for really making our stay so special, nothing was too much trouble for you guys, you all made that extra effort to make sure we had a super holiday, and your service will make sure that we return to your hotel again. Wonderful spot to have lunch on the terrace, taking in the scenery and enjoying fabulous food. Zelio was especially helpful with helping us print out boarding and arranging a taxi. Again thank you so much to everyone, we will be back for sure, hopefully we will get to test out hot tub next time!More
DO NOT GO!!!
VERY POOR HOTEL: We went and had a disastrous time at the hotel. We accidentally spilt a quarter of a small glass of wine onto a bed sheet and we were treated like criminals! The receptionist said we had to pay for three(three??) new sheets plus a mattress! They wanted â¬200!! We had no problem in paying for the sheet because after all it was an accident and we were at fault...however to charge us for three sheets and a mattress was ridiculous. We were TREAT LIKE CRIMINALS and were accosted at the reception and NOBODY WAS POLITE towards us! The manager - who was VERY RUDE - came and saw us and he asked us to go and look at the sheets and then come back and talk to him. We went up with the receptionist as they had locked us out..and had a look and we agreed that the sheet had wine on it, we apologised and informed her that we would pay for it - however, the mattress had some other mark on it which wasn't from us. We duly went back down to see and speak to the manager only to find out he had gone into a meeting! We were outraged and found this to be EXTREMELY POOR SERVICE! Not only this - but there was lots of building work going on around the grounds of the hotel. This would not normally bother us at all - but due to the fact of the way we were treat - and consequently it ruined our holiday - we felt obliged to write about things. POOR HOTEL EXTREMELY POOR STAFF RUDE AND OBNOXIOUS More
Out of season experience
Comparing this family hotel to the nearby 4* chains is easy. There is no challenge. In terms of location this place is great but after that the important things such as room comfort and food quality are way below par. Our breakfast offering was poor having run out of 2/3 hot choices 20 minutes before end of service and not replenishing. If you decide to stay open during quiet times you need to make sure standards don't slip. The room offers no kettle or active minibar which would be fine in a 3* establishment but not 4*. Staff are friendly enough but bar/restaurant has lack of atmosphere which is mostly down to poor lighting. Shame professional interior decorators weren't called in. This place isn't budget so hard to see how it survives against modern standard chain hotels. Some good interior design, lighting and improved breakfast could go a long way.More
